    I have a buris FF and want to attach it my g20? I dont need to keep the iron sights and didnt want to have the slide cut. Is there a good mount that replaces the rear sight? I was told the universal mount for glocks would work on all but the g20 & g21. Any other options?

    I used the standard Burris mount but I had to mill the radius off of the mount so it fit the larger slide of the G20. It works great as long as you a mill and about a half hour. There's a pic of it in this thread:

    I actually have saved a pic of that glock. But I dont have access to a mill. Is this something I can do with a file? Or do u have a milled one you would sell me?

    Sorry, I don't have a spare mount. I suppose you could probably use a file. A Dremel may work better/faster. You'll just want to make sure you remove all of the radius so the mount sits flat on the slide. If you look at the link that the previous poster provided, in the picture you can see the gap between the mount & the slide. He just used the mount as-is. That's bad!! It sounds like because of that had problems with the mount coming loose after a few rounds. If you look closely at my picture, you can see that I left the radius on the mount in the area of the dove tail. I believe that helps with the harsh back & forth motion of the slide and it takes some stress off the screws. It was pretty easy to do on a mill but may be harder to achieve with a file. I'm not totally sure it's necessary but it gives me piece of mind. If you'd like, I can take some closer, more detailed pictures of the mount so you have a better idea. I'd prefer to not remove the mount though.

    Just get the one from Springer Precision in Bend, OR. It sits flat.

    Also has front and back nylon tipped screws to prevent rocking. Very good piece. Works on my G20.
